           Chronic Disease Self-management Program

Chronic Disease Self-Management Program, also known as “Better Choices, Better Health,” is a six-week program that runs for 2 ½ hours each week in community settings, senior centers, and physicians offices. People with different chronic health problems attend the program together. Workshops are facilitated by two trained leaders, one or both of whom are non-health professionals (referred to as lay leaders) with chronic diseases themselves.
